I was pleasantly surprised at the large variety of menu items. We were both pleased with our choices. Service was attentive with a reasonable wait time.

We each had different meals, all were equally only ok. The meals weren't bad enough to send back, but far from the quality and taste I expected for the cost of the meal. I don't think we'll be back.

The Mai Tai cocktail tasted like Hawaiian Punch with bottom shelf vodka. The crab cakes were dry and bland. In short, the food was overpriced and barely edible. At least the beer was good, and the service was very friendly.
